    Thank you, Franco. You and Kildare are humbling me.

    The only place I've removed any rust is inside the wheels, and that only because I didn't want my inner-tubes getting roughed up. Otherwise just bathing it in Gibbs (try some today!).

    Here's a sissy bar clamp I installed this evening. Not the sharpest pic, but I dig the colors.

    Received this in the mail today. Is this cool or what?

    An original by RRB's own ODDER. It's like I'm getting a trophy already. What a righteous surprise.

    Of course, what was inside the box was cool, too. Rus-tastic!

    These bits have been patiently aging for years just for this moment.

    Hat tip ODDER. Thanks man.

    Way cool, I also received a package from Odder recently and cut the artwork off to hang up in the garage.

    Glad you liked it man. I love drawing junk on packaging it's kinda fun to see who sees it along the way. One of the guys in the Wichita mail sorting center started commenting on my box drawings on instagram. So I sent a package to my friend in California with some "art" giving a nod to the postal service. My friend then looked up the postal worker and sent the package to him. That was pretty neat. Sorry to detail your bike thread. Carry on. ~ODDER

    That package is killer!
    I'd frame that sucker and hang it in the shop.

    I did need a raleigh chopper sissy bar, but bit the bullet already and ordered it. I'm a sucker for unusual 70's bicycle accessories. Think I have everything I need for my current build. I'm just waiting by the mailbox with my fingers crossed that everything gets here in time with some to spare for assembly.

    Got the front wheel done. It's a beautiful thing.

    Like the rear Slik, the Westwind is Made in USA. You know it. I know it. Now everyone knows it.

    Hope to get a bit more done this weekend.

    Lovely fall Saturday afternoon. Getting something done.

    Head badge is in remarkable good shape considering how rough the rest of the frame is. Original? Swapped out at some point?

    saturday1.jpg

    Doesn't fit in. Installed different, more appropriate badge.

    saturday2.jpg

    Headset and gooseneck installed.

    Looking good!

    Not being critical here, but since you're embracing the rusty and crusty, the clean chain seems out of character with the rest of the bike.
